Microsoft’s Bing AI Integrated with Samsung Galaxy SwiftKey Keyboard. Microsoft has recently integrated its Bing AI with its popular SwiftKey keyboard, enabling users to access its AI chatbot easily. This integration is now being rolled out to all modern Samsung Galaxy phones, as Samsung’s One UI uses Microsoft’s SwiftKey keyboard by default. However, some users may not appreciate the uninvited integration of Bing AI, as they prefer to use their default keyboard.
SwiftKey Version 126.96.36.199 Update
Microsoft announced on Twitter that the SwiftKey update, version 188.8.131.52, which includes Bing AI integration, will soon be available to Samsung users in the coming days. This integration has been gradually rolling out to SwiftKey users since mid-April, including on the recently resurrected iOS version. This integration of Bing AI aims to provide users with more personalized search results and improve their typing experience.
Switching to Samsung’s Default Keyboard
Samsung Galaxy users who prefer not to use Bing AI integrated into their keyboard can switch to Samsung’s default keyboard instead. Go to Settings > Languages and Input > On-Screen Keyboard. However, there is a possibility that Galaxy users may continue to see Bing AI in the future. Reports indicate that Samsung may be considering moving away from its $3 billion deal with Google to make Bing its new default search engine.
Microsoft’s Recent Actions
This news follows Microsoft’s recent actions, where users trying to check out Google’s rival Bard AI on its Edge browser were interrupted. Microsoft has pushed to integrate its Bing AI and other products into popular devices and applications. Although this may benefit users by providing more personalized and efficient services, some may prefer more control over their devices and applications.
